When preparing for Life Line Screening procedures, there are a few things that one is expected to observe. First, there are screening procedures that require one first to undergo a fasting session. During this time, a patient survives on water only and in some rare special cases, a patient is allowed to follow a specified meal plan. Such exceptional cases include people living with diabetes. The bottom line here is that Life Line Screening tries to make health screening as comfortable and less straining as possible. The screening results are analyzed by the physician to ensure that if there are any signs of a potential health issue, it is solved before it gets out of hand.
Preparations and What to Wear
Preparations are not limited to eating and diet alone- some screening will require a specified code of dressing. Clients who go for stroke screening- either Carotid artery disease or Atrial Fibrillation- are advised to wear loose clothing. Shirts are specified as short sleeved, and that has an open collar. For Atrial Fibrillation, in particular, some things such as watches, pantyhose, oil, and lotion are prohibited. Phones are also not allowed during the time of screening. The peripheral arterial disease also has requirements close to these. There are many reasons why short-sleeved shirts are preferred over long sleeves, the main reason being to have blood pressure cuffs easily put.
As for the screening that requires one to fast, the fasting duration vary from one condition to the other. Abdominal Aortic aneurysm, for example, requires a patient to fast for at least four hours before screening is done. Before the commencement of fasting, one is advised to stay away from gassy foods and to eat half as much food as he eats on a normal day. Patients screening for type two diabetes and complete lipid panel are required to fast for at least 12 hours prior
